Its amazing to see whats going on here. The AfD election bombshell last week was the starting point and th results are amazing.
Merkels CDU is starting to openly revolt against Merkel. Her own health minister Spahn says, teh CDU must seek more distance from Merkel.
Merkel lost her sucessor Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Merkel wanted her to be the next after her, build her up...but the AfD coup in my state Thüringen burned AKK away. She went there to dictate to her thuringian party "friends" what she wants...and got rejected. Her total lack in authority was shown in public so she stepped back.
Not without damaging Merkel further by saying, she want stay in office until a new chancellor candidate is ready. With that she want make sure that Merkel wont try a 5th term...
Meanwhile Merkel got the next strike.
She fired Christian Hirte, who was special envoy of eastern Germany and replaced him with a loyal Merkelist.
But the CDU in Thüringen openly revolts against her and now will make Hirte the new leader of CDU Thüringen. Thats a full blow against Merkel.
Meanwhile Merkels CDU is in freefall. The old party of Adenauer and Kohl collapsed to 12% in Thüringen.
It will be interesting to see how long Merkel can cling to power. Its so disgusting and with each day it gets worse. She is political dead but sticks to her office. She has no ideas, nothing. All she wants is the power. She has some minions still around her and it will be interesting how it develops.
Merkel rules sice 2015 and while she was good the first 8 years, her reign became more and more erratic and crazy.
The biggest problem we have in Germany is, that chancellor can be elected again and again.
I hope this ends soon. Right now it gets worse evry day. I cant imagine to endure this another 18 months and most peopel here agree with that.
